   Okay, so this month it's a little different. You've undoubtedly noticed that I usually use DVDs, this is because you're given appropriate music for dance routines, you've got an instructor to remind you of your posture and form (dance or not) and to tell you what not to do, as well as to help you keep time. This month it isn't like this.
   I receive daily newsletters from and while these are usually contradictory nonsense about what to eat and what to avoid and so on and not usually worth even clicking, they do occasionally offer a great workout routine, and recently I was emailed just that.
   I've mentioned kickboxing in the past, though I use 10 Minute Solution kickboxing DVDs for 30-40 minutes a day, and I usually put my own music on instead of listening to the instructor and go to my own beat. I know the DVDs well enough to do that at least. But I was emailed a routine called Kickbox Fusion instructed by Natalie Uhling of NUfit and it was, for once, right up my street.

  It's a mix of strength, hip hop and kickboxing, but a lot of that is present only really within the attitude of executing the moves, or at least as far as I can see. Still, it looks great.
   The workout is about 30 minutes long, and there are 8 moves. As with most workout routines on the website, there is a video of each move with an explanation during, as well as a written explanation and description beside the video as well. The idea is that you do each move for 45 seconds with a 15 second break before moving onto the next, then take a 1 minute breather after each circuit before doing it again, about 3-4 times. I'm quite looking forward to it, and since I already have my playlist worked out from my other kickboxing, as well as familiarity to form and force, I think it could go well! I'm quite excited to start today!
   I'll be sure to update on progress on the 18th!
